Nash's Penshurst Theatre

In August 1925 Hurstville Council approved a plan by W. Nash to build a picture theatre next to Penshurst Station. It would be a brick structure with an ornamental facade and seating for 1,100 on very comfortable new design seats. The theatre could also be used as an assembly hall and a space measuring 62 by 35 feet will be set aside for dancing.

Penshurst is a small suburb which lies across the local government areas of the City of Hurstville and the Municipality of Kogarah. It has a modest shopping area and the arrival of large theatres like the Penshurst Theatre and the Odeon Theatre was a big event.

By the 1930’s ownership of the Penshurst Theatre passed to Mr. E.M.Smithson. It closed in 1954 and was converted into a supermarket and fitness club.
